received reaction from the secretary of defense leon panetta about general petraeus resignation. what can you tell us about that? >> he was en route to reporters and said it was a sad situation to have a established career end in this manner. my heart obviously goes out to hip and his family. but i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you are director of the c.i.a. with all the channels that face you in that position. >> he was then asked as a former member of congress how he felt about congress not being informed about the f.b.i. investigation. to which he said, "that is another issue i think we ought to look at, because as a former director of the c.i.a., working closely with the intelligence committees you know i believe there is a responsibility to make sure that the intelligence committee are informed of issues that could effect the security of those intelligence operations. >> thank you. in a city where keeping secrets is next to impossible many national leaders had no idea of the petraeus affair until shortly before you heard about it. >> catherine herridge
, they had an only giggs to tell the president. >> the defense secretary leon panetta telling reporters that congressional intelligence leaders should have been notified and much sooner. >> i believe that there's a responsibility to make sure that the intelligence committees are informed of issues that could affect, you know, the security of those intelligence operations. >> joining me now is constantly unfolding story, we have two nbc correspondents, kristen welker and michael isikoff michael? >> what we learned last night, general allen, the u.s. commander in afghanistan has been implicated in this because of 20,000 to 30,000 documents exchanged with jill kelley. the tampa associatite who triggered this investigation when she complained about those menacing e-mails that she had been getting from an anonymous sourt who turned out to be paula broadwell, the woman who was having the affair with cia director david petraeus. what we were being told that the original e-mails, these anonymous e-mails from broadwell to kelley did not initially specifically reference petraeus, it talked about
of putting it. >> i want to play what leon panetta said last night. he had reporters around him asking about the information he's been privy to. let's play it, please. basically, i'm sorry, and i apologize, we don't have that. he was asked if he has answers to critical information. he said i'm reading the papers like you are to determine just what the committee finds out. that you have leon panetta saying i'm reading the papers just like everyone else. what's your reaction to that information? >> he's talking about in terms of general petraeus. obviously, the defense secretary is aware of what the findings were in terms of general allen. because my understanding is that the justice department notified the council's office of what they called a potential problem with the allen nomination knowing there was a confirmation this week. and the defense department then took the steps to -- made it public last night and early this morning. so obviously he knows about this part of it. i assume he's talking about the petraeus part and the decision not to inform congress. and i think he also said in tha
's an issue with leon panetta has to stay around for a few months because tough replace petraeus and all shuffling that has to go around. but eventually panetta is going to lead as defense secretary. but john kerry would be first in line to succeed him. what i find interesting is if it's true, it means the white house is not buying into the idea you can't pick john kerry because it opens up the senate seat and scott brown wins the senate seat. >> do you like kerry at defense as an idea? >> he's as qualified as anybody if he wants that. i just feel like if you want him for that job and you think he's a good match, don't be scared off by this guy. >> 100% agree. >> if he's the right guy for the job, that's where he belongs. >> i tried to throw steve a life raft so you didn't have to talk about petraeus and you threw me right off. that was the ridiculous segue. any way, next up, we continue our series taking a look at the most pressing issues facing the country. this last conversation not being one of them. today the issue was one that affects every american's wallet. we're talking taxes. >
at this moment? bill: the last man to head the cia was leon panetta. petraeus took over from him when he took the job as defense secretary. now panetta was asked about the situation on his way overseas late last night. roll this. >> first, obviously it was a, it was a very sad situation to you know, have a distinguished career like that end in this manner, and my heart obviously goes out to him and to his family but i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all of the challenges that face you in that position that, you know, that personal integrity comes first and foremost. bill: so secretary panetta was also asked by reporters if the fbi should have alerted key members of congress about the investigation sooner? panetta saying that is something that should be looked at. martha: well the fbi is now preparing a timeline of its investigation to respond to lawmakers who think that they were told too late. this is it what we know so far according to a senior member of the obama administration. on wednesday the director of national intelligence
's exhausted, understandably so. leon panetta who come phaout commutes from washington to california he wants out. he's over 70 and wants to row tire. timothy geithner the treasury secretary wanted out a while ago and was pressed to say. i would think in the case of panetta and clinton that republicans will be unhappy to see them go because they are pretty popular up on capitol hill, a lot of respect for both of them. obviously hillary clinton with the libya situation there is some criticism there, generally speaking i think conservatives have been happy with a liberal democratic president having people like hillary clinton and panetta running national security. geithner not as popular with conservatives. and eric holder definitely because of fast and furious and other policies not as popular with conservatives. martha: it race raises the questions in all four of those spots, who do you think are some of the names that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state
here. >> general allen says he did nothing wrong. however, the pentagon panetta spokesperson last night said this involves 20,000 to 30,000 documents. that's a lot of documents sent between two -- two years between jill kelley a civilian woman, and top general in afghanistan. doesn't that raise red flags? >> well this is from 2010 to 2012. so it covers a couple of years. they're not documents the way we consider documents. these are e-mails going back and forth. if you see the way people blackberry with their iphones and text back and forth, it's still a lot, but i think what they did is -- >> is it normal for jill kelley - in florida to have -- >> she isn't your average housewife in florida. erin moriarty will get into that later. she is a major figure around the central air force base mcdill air force base. >> and in washington as well. >> that, too. she's going fo visit petraeus in washington at the cia and petraeus is telling this to broadwell. and broadwell and he have just broken off. you can watch the wheels turning there. she's thinking did he throw me o
